With its French CD'i602cc air-cooled twin and 4-speed boxFinished in very flat Dove Grey paintwork. May polish up a bitInterior very tired. Non-runnerNB. On offer from a private collection, this vehicle has not been used for some time. It is a non-runner and isstrictly sold as seen.Manufactured by Citron between 1961 and 1978, the Ami 6was a supermini and for several years was the best-selling car in the French home market. When the company eventually decided to replace it, a total of 1,840,396 units had been sold globally. It wasoften called the Citron 3CV (Three Horses), as theengine size of 602cc was a little bit largerthan the upper limit of the 2CV taxation class, and was offeredas either a four-door saloon, four-door estate, or a two-door van.The early models were thrust forward by a 602cc air-cooled twin, not generating too much 'G-force' which was probably just as well given that the front seats easily unclipped and could be used aspicnic chairs. The Ami 6, along with the Ford Taurus, werethe first vehicles fitted withrectangular headlights, aninnovative design thatwent against the view that all headlights had to be circular.Despite having dramatic modern styling,the initial sales were as slow as the car (0-50mph in just over half a minute) as it was judged to be tooexpensive, however, things quickly picked up and it was ultimately much loved.1967 Citroen Ami 6https://youtu.be/WrZV4cTrZt0true
